Rory and Heather Tyer

Rory Tyer serves as Vice President of Marketing with Global Outreach. He and Heather moved to Tupelo from Chicago in 2015.

Rory is a writer, songwriter, and creative entrepreneur who originally relocated to Chicago from Virginia to pursue PhD-track master's work in New Testament studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He continues as a student of the New Testament and serves in the local church whenever he can through preaching and music leadership. In 2012, the Lord led him to walk away from an academic career path and into marketing. This gave him experience with videography, multi-platform content marketing, and copywriting; during this time he also served as the music leader for a small church plant on Chicago's north side. He regularly writes and performs music with Rory Tyer Band and is currently overseeing the recording of their next record, Love in the Time of Social, which will be the tenth album he has independently produced to date.

Heather is a physician assistant at North Mississippi Health Center. She is a North Carolina native and UNC graduate who earned her physician assistant credentials, as well as a master's in public health, at Emory University. She spent three months in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for her public health practicum, and her first PA job was at Lawndale Christian Health Center providing high-quality healthcare in a high-need, low-access neighborhood. She is skilled in Spanish and conducted about half of her patient visits fully in Spanish while working at LCHC. She is passionate about health education and clinical best practices.

Rory and Heather work together to love and serve the community around them as best as they can, especially through opening up their home and serving at Trace Crossing, their local church. Rory and Heather's only children, at present, are two brown-nosed American Staffordshire Terriers--commonly known as pit bulls--named Norah and Rio.
